Our Mission

 

Being ‘Green’ means a lot more to International Packaging than just recycling. Our mission is to strive to be a leader in sustainable packaging continually. We not only want to be a part of creating a cleaner environment but to also support our client’s sustainability goals.

Proudly Partnering with the Plastic Credit Exchange

International Packaging is committed to donating a portion of the revenue from every job where IPI purchases plastic for manufacturing to the Plastic Credit Exchange. The Plastic Credit Exchange, a global, non-profit plastic offset program, uses those funds to offset the plastic generated by removing equal amounts from the environment.  

 

When you have a project at IPI using plastic, consider joining the movement toward plastic responsibility and offsetting your footprint.  Together we can make a difference!

Our sustainability efforts include:
 

  • Sourcing and using sustainable films and other materials
     

  • Reduced carbon foot print, waste, and resource/energy usage in comparison to other more traditional forms of packaging using an environmentally clean manufacturing process.
     

  • Certified home/industrial compostable films including cellulose based which degrades to a molecular level because it is organic matter.

Sustainability Efforts

Manufacturing Excellence

We’re focused on keeping abreast of the latest sustainable packaging and printing trends and are committed to manufacturing excellence to support those efforts.

Our production floor is designed to follow Safe Quality Food (SQF ) procedures to reduce energy and material waste.

We are 9.0 SQF certified and hold licenses, and credentials from the MN Department of Agriculture, Food & Drug Administration (FDA), QIMA Testing Labs, and other credible organizations.

 

Compliance with these governing bodies ensures that we’re using the best processes and procedures for cleanliness and limiting waste.
